Onions have layers. Ogres have layers. You get it. We both have layers. End of story, bye bye. See you later. -Shrek

I’ve seen the movie a million times and I’m still not quite sure what that means! Emotional layers? Maybe Shrek meant ogre stink? :P

Anyway, that’s what I was thinking about when I went outside Friday and took these pictures. Of the stinky melting snow.

They’re stinky and emotional. Emotional because they cause car accidents–well, OK, it’s careless driving on slick roads that cause car accidents, not the layers–and stinky because the snow has been here so long, I think it has mold.

At any rate…

The snow layers aren’t comparable to cakes or parfait like donkey suggests ogres should be. Onions. More like onions.

And my favorite:


This is the core of a big snowpile. I know I already put it up on Weekly Winners, it’s just so cool that I thought it deserved to go up once more! :P

Aside from stepping outside and taking pictures during naptime I also ventered out for a walk with Deeder on Friday. We actually made the 1 1/2 mile trek to the library safely on the sidewalk, only twice did we have to go off onto the road due to heaps of muddy snow blocking our way or puddles of slush too deep to walk through.

Deeder found some really good books and we just barely missed the bus.
Unwilling to walk up our hill I decided to go down to the bus terminal and wait. There are some shops nearby there so we just browsed around for the half hour before another bus came in. Total our outing was 2 1/2 hours. We arrived home in time to still enjoy an hour of sunlight and some fun splashing around in the parking lot mud puddles outside our house.

Today is a very special date since I get to go in for my 28 week visit at the OB/GYN with the doctor who delivered Deeder. He’ll be Carly’s doctor too. Up until this point we’ve been seeing the midwives. Here in VT the midwives do the first and second trimester care then one of the two doctors takes over for the last 12 weeks.
Hopefully an update on that visit will go up on Waking Early.

Can you believe we’re making plans for who is going to watch Deeder when Carly comes? Yeah. There have been three volunteers already! We’re very thankful but think he’ll end up just coming along. Is that allowed?

Happy Monday everyone. May your day be full of plenty of sunshine!

    We had Wesley with us while I labored. He couldn’t sleep over, but he was there for the birth. Luckily it wasn’t over night!!

    Those layers are impressive. I can imagine they are stinky, but I’ve never been around so much snow, so haven’t experienced it first-hand. I’m glad you and Diederick got to get out and do all that walking. :)
    Today we’re having rain, rain, rain. You know all about that, having grown up here. :P

  5. Uck. I hate when the snow has been around so long that it starts to resemble a dirt pile. Uck, uck, uck.

    The last one looks like a dinosaur to me, so that pile is allowed to stay.

  6. those layers are incredible – where does all the snow go when it melts ?
    I love your way of talking us through Deeder’s adventures. I can talk for hours on the phone too.
